Chakkanaub is a great idea for shore snokeling, your resort may offer a boat trip which is even better. I took my 6 and 7 year old on a boat trip last year and they loved it. If fact, we had to go twice. They visited 3 different reefs and spent a lot of time in the water.
Id you have time, I would suggest getting dive certified.... thats even better. You can take the course locally and do your checkout dives in Coz. Some of the best diving anywhere. A resort course is OK and you will get to do one reef dive, but for a little more money you could get your certification. If you want to dive, go see my buddies at
great folks and excellent service.
Made 3 consecutive trips to Coz, this year we are changing up a bit. 30 days (but whose counting) till 2 weeks in Turks and Caicos, can't wait to hit the water.
Have a blast Ray, Coz is great. Just get out of the downtown area, its a zoo.
Make sure you rent a car and see the rest of the island...spectacular scenery on the south and eastern shore.
Anyone been to this Palancar Reef for snorkeling
Palancar is great by boat, but the best of the reef is a little deep for snorkeling.
Here is a link to my solo trip 2 years ago. It was great, 12 dives in 3 days. Going by myself and doing my own agenda was pretty cool.
If you need a tour guide, I am available on those dates. :P 8)
